The long wait is finally over. Red Dwarf is BACK and so are our LIVE DwarfCasts – in a change from Series XI, these are now happening at UKTV pace, meaning they’re back to being (almost) Instant Reactions. First up, a rather under-strength G&T team was represented by Ian Symes, joined by a trio of guests: Jo Sharples of The Official Red Dwarf Fan Club fame, Helena Raymonde of hanging round car parks with Robert Llewellyn fame, and Clayton Hickman of actual fame.
Yes, the former editor of Doctor Who Magazine and writer for The Sarah Jane Adventures and Wizards vs Aliens popped round to G&T Towers to chat all things Cured. Topics included Hitler, wheelchair ramps, shooting someone in the face, UKTV Originals branding, Hitler again, Stalin’s lookalikes, the quality of Series XII’s special effects, the quality of Series XII’s episode titles, more Hitler, and whether or not Lister should just fuck off. Thanks to all of you who listened live, but for those who didn’t, here it is in full:
There’ll be fewer minor celebrities but more G&T members next week, as we tackle The One Where Everyone’s Kryten. Do join us LIVE at 9pm on Friday 13th (uh-oh) October for that. In the meantime, look out for our Series XII title sequence analysis soon, and our full in-depth review of Cured in the coming days.
